The Fraud is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Digital. Once again, The Only Michael James demonstrates his talents as a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist by continuing to write, perform, and produce all the songs on the album. While the process for creating the songs on The Fraud was similar to The Digital, The Fraud is a major departure musically from it's predecessor. The album still retains the elements Michael is known for; catchy hooks and memorable melodies, but it also signifies a permanent shift towards a more rock oriented sound. The Fraud is packed with energetic guitar driven rock anthems like "Gone" and the lead off single, "Back To Reality," a song in which The Only Michael James sings about the benefits of living inside ones own head rather than facing a sometimes unpleasant reality. Other album standouts include the R&B flavored "Venusian Girl," a story of an interplanetary romance (yes...interplanetary) and the deeply insightful ballad, "Why Love." Upon it's release The Fraud will be available at all major online retailers and it will also be available through the viral website willworkforu.com. In an unprecedented effort to avoid the downfalls of the recession and the download-centric state of the music industry, The Fraud will be available without having to purchase it.
